Press release: Response to Chancellor's Apprenticeship Levy announcement

Commenting following the Chancellor's announcement of a review into the Apprenticeship Levy, David Dingle CBE, Chairman of Maritime UK, said:

"Maritime UK welcomes the Chancellor’s announcement of a review into the operation of the Apprenticeship Levy, and in particular his clear commitment to consulting businesses.  

"We are wary about making wholesale changes so early in the life of the Levy, because they will add to the turbulence which is so off-putting to companies, but it’s clear that the Levy isn’t working properly yet.  

"We will be consulting our members on what specific changes they’re looking for, and we will be responding to the Government’s consultation with our suggestions."
